|This was my solution at my last house. I had raised-bed gardens.|
|A door to nowhere.|
|Joe & Scott's excellent solution - a mirror.|
|A spot for Spot to poo.|
|An artistic & colorful nook.|
|Filled in with flowers.|
|A rockin' pond.|
|A fountain feature.|
|Patio & grill combo.|
|A tight-fitting water feature!|
